. we are learning u.s. forces could soon be headed to the syrian border. their mission part of nato's plan to put patriot missiles at the line between turkey and syria. those patriots are designed to intercept any potential missiles coming from syria. and defense officials say any country that sends its equipment is likely to send their own troops to operate it we're told no one has signed deployment orders officially just yet. it's almost certain at this hour u.s. troops will be on the move. there is absolutely no indication our fighting men and women would cross into syrian territory. but the pentagon has told the obama administration it would require more than 75,000 soldiers to secure syria's chemical weapons stockpile. it's impossible to say exactly how much that would cost. but the price tag for that sort of operation could easily run into the billions of dollars. now, again, there is no indication at all that such an operation will happen any time soon. all this coming just days after president obama warned the syrian regime of consequences if it turned chemical weapons on it

it in perspective. the euro/u.s. dollar didn't move that much whatsoever. from that point of view, i don't think that we just have to look at today or the last two days of development in euro/u.s. dollar. of course, global trade is really important for the german economy. it continues to be very important. even from a private consumption point of view, we did have quite a bit of support as of late. also because of the wages. and looking at the world bank report, also looking at the asian economies in 2013, 2014, them seeing a little better picture is very good for the german economy and not to speak about the turnaround in the u.s. which seems to be stabilizing, looking this also at the housing market. so business sentiment better than expected. it is rising. the current conditions a little weaker than expected. add to that the financial analyst numbers we had as of late, also better than expected. not too bad. >> patricia, we'll see you again next hour. thank you very much for following all the latest there. >> sure. >>> now, shares in ubs have edged up in early trade after the bank announced a

indeployment of the patriot missile batteries from u.s., germany and netherlands. this would serve to be a pretty firm warning to the flailing assad regime to mess with nato member, turkey. if you talk to some of most vocal critics, though of the proposal, and that would be the russians who are in brussels at that nato meet and who were here, putin in istanbul, meeting with turkish leadership yesterday, they argue further militarizing this long border will only serve to escalate tensions. >> all right. ivan, thanks so much. ivan watson in istanbul, who is being down near that bordertown that has been the subject of shelling. moving on. before the scandal broke, many people could have seen former cia director david patreaus running for office. and now there is news that he was indeed approached. the way he was approached may surprise you. >>> also -- israel standing firm on its decision to go forward with construction of new settlements in the west bank and east jerusalem. hear what that might mean for the middle east peace process if that even exists. and when you switch from anoth

this morning. it's a big development in the fight against syria and a new level of u.s. involvement. we just learned within the past few hours the defense secretary leon panetta signed an order sending two patriot missile batteries to turkey. that's to assist that nation in defending against any pollible military action by syria. this move was expected as the civil war in syria destabilizes the assad regime with each passing day. in addition to this, 400 u.s. troops are going to turkey. they will be deployed to operate the missile batteries. cnn's nick payton walsh has the development. >> reporter: good morning. 400 personnel will be accompanying the batteries. let me give you history. over the past two months, we saw sporadic exchanges of fire across the border. syrian military firing into turkey causing often destruction and death. turkey often responding. that brought about this request to nato for patriot missile batteries. they're supposed to be there. this particular type better at taking out missiles in the sky rather than taking down aircraft. but this move part of a nato response. a

acknowledge that the media have an impact. >> reporter: so whose research to believe? who the judge? the u.s. supreme court already has. in striking down california's attempt at a violent video game law, the court had this to say about studies linking games to violent behavior. these studies have been rejected by every court to consider them, and with good reason. they do not prove that violent video games cause minors to act aggressively. >> as a society, if we focus in on the wrong issue, on something that is a red herring, that is not going to help anybody, that can distract the national conversation from serious issues. >> reporter: neal karlinsky in seattle. >> we want to know, are you rethinking your kid's video game habits? logon to weigh in. >> "the new york post" reported -- >> that's right, they're reporting that adam lanza's mother was thinking about putting him in a mental institution, committing him and he found out about it and perhaps that is why the carnage ensued. >> and we've been wondering all along, the question why. that may be one of the answers. we'll be back. >>> now
